The Expanse in the Media

Recommended Posts

This biology of the Expanse is interesting. He talks mostly about biology in zero-g because there's no research for low g.

Another awesom expanse video from Bora a Kutlu. Amazon should bring him on to make their ads for the show.

Cas Anvar Pre-Dragon Con interview

Cas, Dominique Tipper, Frankie Adams and Shohreh Aghdashloo will be at Dragon Con in Atlanta this weekend.  I would go if I could, the panels they are going to have sound interesting - Science of the Expanse; Diverse Mosaic of the Expanse (about the show's cast diversity) and a free for all panel.

Does anyone know if there's video of the panels? I can't find any. 

I read in the YouTube comments, you have to create an account at DragonCon TV to see the panels. 

This is a fun interview - Shohreh Aghdashloo and Cara Gee at the Mars close approach event at Griffith Observatory in July.  Yes, it is supposed to be that dark, it was shot in infrared.

On impulse, I bought a pass to access the DragonCon TV but only one of the expanse panels seems available. Not worth it :/

Aw, too bad.  Maybe they will have the others up at a later date.

I haven't listened to this yet but it's a podcast on The Expanse from someone who was at DragonCon, I guess they is talk about the panels.

Nope, no Emmys.  The Expanse is one of five finalists for the Peoples Choice Award for Sci-Fi Fantasy Show of 2018; voting is done here.

I checked it a few days later and there was another panel about the science of the Expanse. Very entertaining ?

Some behind-the-scenes stuff to promo the next season on Amazon via io9:

The cast seems really happy, and it looks like there are a few changes coming. Can't wait!

It is so funny seeing them out of character because they are so good in character. (Especially Cara Gee who terrifies me as Drummer.)

It’s the time of year that the “Best Of TV” lists come out. No where is The Expanse mentioned! This is so unfair. Maybe the switch to Amazon will help.

An annual fixture on io9's best TV list, The Expanse represents just about everything we love about science fiction: it’s smart (with a consistent emphasis on the science part of science fiction), has incredibly dynamic characters, shows us conflict on both personal and planetary scales, makes the impossible feel real, and brings us hope. It’s also entertaining as hell, and this year’s third season—which cleverly bridged two of the books in the novel series that it’s based on—impressively expanded the show’s scope, as the mysterious “protomolecule” that’s been driving the action since the very first episode finally revealed its true purpose in the form of a gateway to new, alien worlds. We can’t wait to see what happens next on a show that, in a true disaster-averted scenario, almost didn’t make it to season four.

For the book readers. Reddit is doing a reread of all the books. Spoiler tagging seems good so even us who haven't read ahead could probably participate.

I would love to do the reread. Is this still happening? I can easily catch up in Leviathon Wakes. Squee!

Burn Gorman is probably best known for his role on Torchwood, so I think that’s a good addition.

 I loved him on Turn, playing a British officer who could have been a one dimensional bad guy, but became a more complex character with a sweet, sympathetic side.

Filming on season 4 may have wrapped, but Deadline reports today on three season 4 cast additions:

Quote

Rosa Gilmore (The Handmaid’s Tale), Tyrant alum Keon Alexander and Jess Salgueiro (Mouthpiece) are set for recurring roles on the upcoming fourth season of The Expanse, from Alcon Television Group, the sci-fi drama’s first season on Amazon following its move from Syfy.

Co-created and written by Oscar-nominated screenwriting duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men), The Expanse is based on the bestselling book series by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (under the pen name James S. A. Corey). The cast includes Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham, Frankie Adams and Thomas Jane.

Gilmore will play Lucia Mazur, one of the Belter refugees who have staked their claim to a new Earth-like planet on the other side of the Ring Gates. Trained as a medic, Lucia doesn’t hesitate to help friend and foe alike when disaster strikes. Alexander plays a wily and charismatic Belter faction leader. Salgueiro portrays a cynical corporate security officer.

Gilmore’s other credits include The Handmaid’s Tale and the upcoming John Turturro-directed Big Lebowski spin-off Going Places. She is repped by TMT Entertainment Group.

Alexander is coming off a heavily recurring role in Doug Liman’s YouTube series Impulse. Best known for his two seasons as Rami Said on FX’s Tyrant, he was most recently seen in the season premiere of NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service. He is repped by Gersh, GGA, and Authentic Management.

Salgueiro recently completed recurring roles on Amazon’s The Boys, Comedy Central’s Letterkenny, FX’s The Strain, Lifetime’s Mary Kills People and CBC’s Workin’ Moms. In film, she recently starred in Patricia Rozema’s Mouthpiece which screened at the 2018 Toronto Film Festival. Salgueiro is repped by Echo Lake Entertainment and GGA.

Non-spoilery and fun.  Wish we had the whole thing!  Hopefully they'll release more.

The episode Abaddon's Gate is a finalist for a Hugo award.

Cas Anvar has a fun puzzle/book search going on.  I guessed the first location correctly though I haven't heard back yet if my guess came was received before the prizes ran out.  I hope he hid a book somewhere I can physically find it - I like this kind of thing.

Any word on when S4 comes out on Prime?

No, not really.  I just googled onto a couple articles from last month that say same-o-- sometime in 2019, probably in the summer.  The filming has wrapped and since they'll likely all drop at once, post is taking longer.

Do you just google "The Expanse" or "The Expanse News?"  Or is there a better way?

I'm just very ready to see some new episodes 🙂

Amazon, you know what would make me really happy this upcoming Prime Day? 

A surprise release of season four.

Why is there no release day yet!? I don't understand why they can't give us one.

Since Amazon releases whole seasons at once my guess they’ll want to promote it heavily when they’re about ready to start, SDCC being in late July, and with a Expanse panel on the schedule there, that would be a place to drop a date.

Yes, the SDCC panel is also my best guess. It's scheduled for July 20 (there's a party two days before maybe if there's enough booze someone will slip the date).

About a month or so ago Amazon focused on the reading lists of a couple of the actors so I thought for sure this was leading to an announcement regarding premier date.  It must be coming soon.

With the news of Elvi Okoye's cast, at this rate, I'm more interested in release information for book 9. I will still watch the show but it's fallen way down on my regard.

Not keen on Naomi's new hair. Dominque Tipper still looks great, but she looked even more great with the shaved sides.

I like the new Roci 'beards are a must' uniform. Looks like Amos is winning that competition.
